This forum is for those of our Indian audience who are not yet comfortable with the main forums. The purpose of the forum is to allow new Indian members to get a feel for how the site works, be guided by others, and eventually graduate to the main programming and discussion forums.

And today came God's Calling, to one of the most inspiring ideals of our generation.
We have lost a great leader who inspired our young minds to feel that we live in the greatest nation on earth and that each one of them can achieve great things...
May the creator lead you to heaven.

There are two kinds of Presidents India has seen:
1. Non-Politician: Dr. Kalam, Dr. Zakir Hussain, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, and Dr. Rajendra Prasad, in that they had not held any official position of power (elected position) because of party affiliations, before becoming President of India.
2. Politician: All the others, who had held at least one official position of power (elected) because of party affiliations.
IMHO, the position of President of India, supreme as it is, requires persons who are above petty partisan politics, and those of the Non-Politician type are better suited; they don't have any biases while taking decisions.
I have to agree with AK because that president post was a wrong hat for Kalam. And second term? He gave up himself on that due to political crap .... Besides the value of the 'Indian President post' is really dummy one & funny one too.
Of-course he was a great scientist. I liked his interviews, writings & etc.,
Hey folks. Hope you are doing fine by patting your neighborhood cat everyday. The last time we checked the situation had become worse as regular visitors were content to sit and sleep. Their mouths were hanging open though leaving good opportunities for the cat to get revenge by pushing in something very gross. Before you start plotting your revenge, please think about the poor cats wishing they were in world class empire state buildings and also...nevermind. Go get 'em.

GIT GL™ thatraja has become a film star hamster!!! Recently he was presented the best actor/supporting actor/best villain/best dialogue delivery/best speech/best producer. The media houses rushed to his place and camped for 1 hour including Breakfast in the first 5 mins, Lunch in the next 10 to 20 mins and snacks for the next 5 mins. thatraja was very concerned that the media house reporters had chosen to not have that remaining samosa which was presented in a gold plated plate. He was very moved and decided to shower interviews at the current accepted speed of 1 word per 1/453435435 second. When asked regarding the Best Cameo appearance nomination for the same movie thatraja was immediately very silent and said "no comment". The samosa stirred his fury and he said "those meddling kids" and immediately stormed off. Will thatraja get his fury released at the award team? Will his revenge result in him being offered more budget movies? Today we have a cover story: Telugu Film[^]

World Class Cricket Hamster Abhinav has promoted himself to "On-the-go-running" Reporter!!! Abhinav had met the Indian team when they had a match against Bangladesh. They were happy to see the familiar World Class Cricket Hamster but they had one emotion on their faces:
Abhinav was shocked and demanded to know the reason in a official meeting and immediately called a meeting of the best media houses in the world (we were invited but we demanded a samosa when the infamous Samosa incident at thatraja's celebration but we weren't there. Abhinav told we will get vada pav and we hurried since we're suckers for really nice food). Abhinav said that as the World Class Cricket Hamster he had immediately issued a ultimatum to the team to download the best emoticon pack from Messengers and combine them to create a pack which would make other teams jealous. A 34543634636573247 million trillion dollar reward was declared for Best Emoticon and Best Laughing Emoticon.
